BJ Gone Fishing

One more day before 2009 arrives and so much to do!  Like go fishing, diving, surfing...Here University of Hawaii's superstar, BJ Itoman got some time off the basketball court to land her first Ulua on one of our Red Sea Trips.  We were diving when we heard BJ yell, "Hanapa'a" and reeled in this prize Omilu.  Notice the electric blue-green colors and how vibrate it looks.  Probably one of the most tasty fishes in the trevally family.  I hope we can catch more of these this coming year!  Weather forecasting trades for the rest of this week with a bump on the north with light winds for next week so you know where we will be:) Be safe everyone!

Hawaiian Blackout

Wow how was that Hawaiian Blackout last night?  Luckily I was home safe and sound when everything went black.  No streetlights, TV, computer,  with sirens blaring in the background.  Imagine no lights in your neighborhood not just for one day, but every night?  Well here in Fiji, and many other places in this world it's normal.  No electricity, no video games, no youtube, or internet but just plain old fun under a moonlit sky.  Here our Fijian brothers showed us how to do some firewalking on burning hot stones.  Next time the lights go out, maybe we can bring out the marshmellows and have a barbeque.  Good night...zzzz

A Christmas Wish

Wow! If you are like me, you must be asking where did 2008 go?  Has it been a year already gone by?  Well it's a wonderful life we live having the health and breath to live out our dreams each day.  I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and may your homes be filled with happiness and peace, and of course may God's love and grace shine upon you this day, Christ was born.  Here my nephew Kai stoked on life with his new toys Santa brought him for Christmas.  Hey wait a minute...that looks like my toys:) Wanna trade for the new Wall-E Gamer?  MERRY CHRISTMAS!
